The story is told as a flashback through the eyes of Erika Klein, now an elderly woman who is recounting the history of their family to her granddaughter, Grace, who was directed to visit her by her father; she is there for an important reason, one that will not be revealed until the story’s end. While she waits for her granddaughter, Erika sits and listens to a recording made almost 40 years earlier at a Thanksgiving dinner. The last voice she hears says, “Hello, I am Louis Diamond.” With a broad smile Erika turns off the recording and continues to wait for her granddaughter to arrive. Within a few minutes a turbo taxi arrives and Grace slowly gets out. Unbending her 6 feet, Grace takes her bags, struggling with her rolling suitcase. It has been too long since she has been to the house. Erika opens the front door and goes to hug Grace, who she has missed so much. They have always been very close. After assuring her that there is nothing wrong, Erika heats up water for tea and acknowledges that Grace, her youngest grandchild, has always been her favorite and hopes she will be receptive to the story of her family and understand the gift she wants to give her. After a few minutes Erika begins to tell Grace her story, most of which she has not heard before. The events, the people, the happiness and sadness all combine to place the two women where they are this day. It all begins with Erika starting a new job at a small advertising agency in lower Manhattan, not far from the site of The World Trade Center. Erika finds herself standing in front of a troubled older man who sells pre read newspapers at 50% off who does not talk or look at anyone, until he glances up at Erika with a slight smile. And with that their lives change and the story begins....
